An Apple For Teacher

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

I thought I had just about seen it all when it comes to cupcakes but that was until I saw these little darlings! Coco Cake made these apple cupcakes for the wedding of a teacher and they look absolutely scrumptious. Check out their blog post for more pictures and details!

In Love With J.Crew Bridal

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

When J.Crew first introduced their wedding dress line way back when, I was amazed at how stunningly simple their collection of dresses was. Classic and modern styles made out of practical yet luxurious materials, offered affordable high-fashion design. Fast forward to present day and you have the first J.Crew Bridal Boutique located on Madison Avenue. I will definitely be stopping by for a jaw-dropping experience on my next trip to NYC! In the meantime, I have selected some of my favorites from their Fall 2010 lookbook. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Wedding Style

Friday, July 9th, 2010

The class that I mentioned yesterday reminded me of a beautiful wedding I spotted recently in the latest issue of Wedding Style Guide. While summer is in full swing here in the states, winter is just getting under way in Australia and their winter issue is breathtaking as usual. The assortment of perfect little details throughout this wedding are pure perfection and stopped me dead in my tracks. I adore the couples use of a refined and sophisticated color palette combined with the playful stripes and silhouettes.

This stunning wedding was styled and designed by Maven Creative and I was able to snag a few more images from their site. You really must check out the latest issue and see the plethora of gorgeousness this magazine has to offer. I’ve already scoured each page at least three times! Also, visit the Wedding Style Guide’s blog and site for even more wedding goodies!

Wedding Décor from Pottery Barn

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all well and had a pleasant last few days. I took an extended holiday vacation but am excited to be back into the swing of things again.

A few weeks ago, I took a free wedding decor class from my local Pottery Barn. A friend of mine was curious to check it out and I was equally as excited to see what they had to offer so I tagged along. The store had set up several beautiful tabletops as inspiration and a mini candy bar display. The class was brief but it was a great way to see how the simplest accessories could be used to make a stunning arrangement.

Marianne Graham of the Artful Posy, a local Seattle florist and event planner, was there as a guest speaker. She put the centerpieces together and shared some inspiring tips for how to begin the design process for a wedding. She strongly sugessted that if there is a particular flower that you’d like to incorporate into your event, that you try to schedule around the time when it’s in bloom. Though not impossible to get most flowers year round, a little foresight will save you tons of money in the long run. Another tip; ask your florist to recommend a similar flower to achieve the same look if the timing isn’t quite right.

The three tables were really stunning and my personal favorite was the rustic purple garden theme. Her mixed use of succulents, sweet pea flowers, mint and lavender was perfect! I loved the mini watering cans that could double as seating cards and the burlap table runner. The burlap table runner could be an easy DIY project like this one seen on Style Me Pretty. Above are a few pictures I was able to capture at the event but feel free to check out Marianne’s site or blog and check your local Pottery Barn for upcoming classes.

Mike & Juliaaawww

I adore this screen printed wedding invitation suite designed by groom Mike Dornseif! With more of a show-poster feel and the utterly adorable illustration, this non-traditional invite would be so much fun to receive in the mail. With only a few short months until the wedding, I wish both the bride & groom a very happy and whimsical wedding!
